A balance of strength and versatile size, the 12 pc. 6 pt 1/2" Drive Deep Impact Easy-to-Read Socket Set gives you access and traction in tight spots. Whether you’re pulled-over at the side of the road, fixing a flat or need a little extra muscle to get rusty bolts turning, this rugged set of sockets is backed by the Craftsman Forever Warranty, so you know you can count on every one, no matter what job needs to get done. Slip this set in your box and get to work.
I got these on sale and for the $ they are a great value. The finish is more prone to rusting than top brands like Snap On, but for the price you can't complain. The set I got was Made In The USA, however new stock (from what I've seen) is made in China and unless you buy the China made set at a huge discount, the value isn't as good. Low quality Chinese made tools are a dime a dozen and if you don't want to pay extra for the Craftsman name you can buy Chinese made impact socklets much cheaper elsewhere. Sad to see the last mass marketer of (mostly) USA made handtools switching to offshore production. Once the old USA made stock is depleted it looks like we'll have to go to tool trucks and industrial suppliers if we want domestically made tools.
These used to be top-of-the-line sockets until Donaher moved their manufacturing to China. They are NOT the same! Come on Sears, move them back, we will pay the difference!!!!!!!
As usual you can count on the Craftsman brand for great tools at an affordable price.
Probably made in China like most Craftsman tools are now. Increase the margin on tools in hopes of some profits but that decision isn't working as evidenced by their quarterly track record since 2012. A loosing proposition but at least Stanley is now in charge of the Craftsman brand. Looking for good things to come in the future of this tarnished brand.
Great sockets and definitely worth spending the extra money on these. I have been using them now for a couple of weeks and have not had any issues with them. Would recommend to others looking for sockets in this price range.
Very strong item great item
